As a part of its Federal Energy Regulatory Commission licensing requirements for the Martin Dam Project License, Alabama Power Company has an approved Martin Wildlife Management Program.
As part of the program, Alabama Power will be conducting prescribed burns on company-owned properties along Highway 34, also known as Paces Point Road, that contain longleaf pines. The burns will occur during the next three months (March, April and May). Prescribed burns improve habitat for wildlife by promoting the growth of native grasses and flowers and are essential to maintaining a healthy longleaf pine ecosystem. Burning permits are issued through the Alabama Forestry Commission.
